**Haley**, Wednesday, January 12, 2011 at 11:42pmsolve the first equation for y.

5x-y=-1 subtract 5x from both sides

-y=-1-5x divide by -1

y=1+5x

now, plug this answer in for y in the second equation.

15x=2y

15x=2(1+5x)

15x=2+10x

5x=2

x=.4

plug this(x=.4) into the equation for y.

y=1+5x

y=1+5(.4)

y=1+2

y=2

therefore, x=.4 and y=2 or (.4, 2)
